, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question though. >> sure. bill: blount make as heavy charge though. are there democrats in congress who agree
. president obama, vice president joe biden getting ready to meet with police chiefs and sheriffs from major american cities as former house speaker newt gingrich describes the proposal to ban assault weapons as quote, propaganda. do the new gun controls laws have a chance of passing? with me republican congresswoman marsha blackburn out of tennessee. >> good morning. bill: shoot right down the middle here. will it happens the assault weapons ban. >> no, here is the reason why. it was not renewed in 2004. the fbi and law enforcement officers saying this did not work. what we know is that since the lifting of that ban you've seen crime go down. people, many times, bill, what ends up happening, you get the gun-free zones and you get guns in the hand of criminals and you're right, there's a lot of evil in this world but the assault weapons ban is not the way to fix it. bill: okay. on the assault, let me come back to fixing that in a moment. what about a background check? could that pass? >> well, background checks already are happening and, even, you know, some people will say, there's a gun sh
feinstein and many others and you will probably hear joe biden say this later today, this law was designed to prevent more sandy hooks. now based on what you know about the law, would it or not? >> absolutely not. and if they really wanted to stop future sandy hooks they would repeal the gun free zones law which prevents principals and teachers from being able to protect the children like joel myrick, the assistant principal in mississippi did with his firearm many years ago. that is how you stop. when bad guys get a gun as they're going to, and they show up at a school, rather than waiting 15 or 20 minutes for the police to arrive because they can't be everywhere, you need to have somebody. it is sad that a parent can defend his children at home but he goes to school and he can't defend children there. these gun-free zones have been simply maagnets for the criminal element. if you go back,10, 20 years, all the mass shootings in this country except for one or two occurred in gun-free zones. they may be evil but they're not stupid. they don't go shoot up police stations. they go where they
